Updated Update: Lisa got more testing done. The results say her initial diagnosis was wrong: it's NOT cancer! She is still very sick, and may eventually need surgery. For a full update on her condition from Lisa herself, check here.
Clearly the buttons worked ;) So you can take them down now! But please continue to offer Lisa your support, as she still likely has a rough recovery ahead.
Update: Lisa's had a second opinion from a doctor who said the mass in her abdomen may not be cancerous. But we still don't know for sure. She's awaiting more testing. I'll keep you posted.
I've made this button in support of Lisa from Midwestern Mommy, who has just been diagnosed with cancer:
Lisa is a mother, and a wife, and a sister, and a daughter, and an excellent writer, and a great friend, and a good person. She has helped many people, including me, get through dark days. In fact, the very first time she visited my blog, she commented, twice, on this post, to reassure me, after my son was first diagnosed with a sensory disorder, that everything was going to be all right, and she knew it, because her son had struggled with sensory issues too. She offered to talk to me, a complete stranger at the time, over the phone. And then she gave me an entire page's worth of kind and useful advice.
Because she's just that kind of awesome.
Please feel free to copy this button and put it up on your site to support Lisa. I'd appreciate it if you'd link the button back to this post, so other people can read about Lisa, copy the button, and go visit her site.
Then remind all of your readers to click through to Midwestern Mommy, and leave a kind comment or send an email showing support.
